I'm Colin, and State has been my adopted home for most of my life. We moved from Tucson, AZ to Wake Forest, NC when I was <1, so my parents are both U of Arizona fans. My best friend’s mom worked for NC State, and my other best friend’s dad graduated from State back in the glory days, so growing up I ended up at a lot of Wolfpack sporting events. I also distinctly remember being bullied in my elementary years by gaggles of idiot jock UNC/Duke basketball type guys, and while I don’t remember specifics I honestly think I can trace my hatred for the Blues to those days. The choice, therefore, was natural for me. My natural affinity for the romantic adventure tale – think Star Wars, I was a huge Star Wars kid – further inspired my love for the Red and White, that undermanned, outmatched, and yet still valiant and morally superior Rebel Alliance against the massive might of the Evil Empire. Currently a junior at State College, I am at once both young enough to have saved myself some of the pain of the disaster days and also too young to remember anything before them, making the resurgence under the Yow era something of a wonderful new world to me.

The team seems to have buckled down. I think a lot of people are underestimating the Pack this weekend, and I think this team may yet surprise us. There's loads of potential in a group that will be playing for redemption in front of a rowdy home crowd against an FSU team that is untested on the road. Say what you will - I like our chances this weekend.
